Chess gets solved everyday. Just depends on how you define solved.
A players makes some good moves and has a winning postion. They find a plan to solve the defense black has come up with and win the game.
This game of chess was solved by the winning side.
Is not a draw also a solution? Neither a win, nor a loss, but certainly a resolution. In some cases, without a rule to cover it the game would never end, so in honor of "PI" day, may I suggest that man insists on a resolution or outcome and interupts the game by "rule" much the same as he rounds off the answer to 22 divided by 7.
I solved chess and I put this info in my safe deposit box, but I lost the key. Damn wine all to h*ll.
I believe to to answer this question, aside from the ones where a mate is made because of an avoidable error, every possible game would have to be analysed by some hefty super computer.
I say this because there could be a massive amount of sacrifices in the "perfect game".
With todays technology we can not say what percentage of possible games are pointless, throwaway games but if I had to guess I'd say it was about 99%.
Chess will always be playable but the short answer is... yes, one day! But is it a draw like naughts and crosses? Or does white have to win?
If in ten years it is solved it is falsely true, otherwise if it is not solved it is truely false.
Call Sherlock Holmes!!
The term "chess will never be solved" is ambigous. What does it mean?
If the question is "is chess a draw with perfect play on both sides?" the answer is "yes".
Couldn't have said it better myself.
You are an idiot. Both question have the same meaning and nobody knows whether it will be a draw with perfect play.
A perfect football match is a 0-0 draw.
Certainly it seems like this question will never be solved...
only if chess will never be solved.
Will chess ever be dissolved ?
Most people or chess players believe the two statements have different meanings. "solved" means analyzed to a draw with ALL possible variations such as has been done in chess positions with only a few pieces.
Is chess a draw with best possible moves? Means is chess a draw regardless if a chess computer ever solves chess by analyzing all variations.
The answer to the 2nd question is "yes"
The answer to can chess ever be "solved" is "probably not."
Chess will be solved when I have finished my super quantum computer.
No the answer to the second question is not yes. Only thing that can be said is black cant win with perfect play. But white might.
You can take my word as I'm a neutral - brown.
schookin Virtually all the strong players disagree with you. More than 99.8% of the grandmasters disagree with you. I also disagree with you.
I know chess is a draw with best play for both sides.
Ponz111 How do you "know" it's a draw with perfect play for both sides? Can you prove it? No? Then you don't "know."
False, because when it is solved, we will edit one rule and it will take a very long time before it gets solved again.
Plus it will not be solved during my time anyways
All the evidence tells me chess is a draw with best play for both sides.
my 60 plus years of playing also tells me this.
Do you really think 99.8% of the grandmasters are wrong and you are right?
As players progress in chess skill, they know more and more that chess is a draw with best play for both sides.
Should I resign here? Or does black has resources to save the game?
